Windows 10: Cannot reenable Insider Preview Builds after upgrading to 10586. Solved

  1.    06 Nov 2015 #1

    Cannot reenable Insider Preview Builds after upgrading to 10586.


    I just finished upgrading my desktop to build 10586, and found that preview builds are disabled by default.

    When i go to Preview Build settings and click the "Get Started" button, an error window pops up with the following error code:

    0x80072EF1.

    Anyone else with this problem?
    And if yes, could this be a server side error?

    Maybe I am missing something here.

    You said you had finished "upgrading my desktop to build 10586".
    If that is so, you won't get the option "Get started", because you are already in the Insider Preview build program.
    You will get this instead......................

    Preview builds were enabled on the previous build, and ring was set to Fast.

    I received 10586 and successfully upgraded to it this morning.

    After completing the process, Insider builds became automatically disabled, showing the "Get Started" button instead.

    Clicking said button just leads to the 0x80072EF1 error mentioned.

    I suspect this is some type of connectivity issue.

    I don't suppose a Restart will change that ?

    You are welcome.
    Sometimes the good od-fashioned Restart does wonders.
